Technical Summary

   This document describes DNSSEC (specified in RFC 4033, RFC 4034,
   RFC 4035 and others); one purpose is to introduce/collect all
   of the RFCs in one place to allow readers to understand the many
   aspects of DNSSEC (and more easily reference it!). Another purpose
   is to move DNSSEC to Best Current Practice status.

Working Group Summary

   There was good consensus, with no major drama or controversy.  

Document Quality

   The document is of good quality, and very readable. There is no
   protocol or formal language. There are many implementations
   and deployment of DNSSEC, but they are not specific to, nor
   driven by the document. 


   Tim Wicinski is DS
   Warren Kumari is RAD!!!!! (Yes, I did check the expiration date of this joke, and, no, it hasn't expired yet...)
